Crowns of Glory


A nod to natural hair, luxurious evening gowns and some of the most talented women in Hollywood – T is a magazine after my own heart.

T, the New York Times style magazine’s compelling feature titled, “Nightie Aphrodites,” left me wanting more – but in a good way. Never have I been so moved by a piece of art, until now.  I suppose it is pride, coupled with a feeling of awe and nostalgia, as though I am witnessing history in the present.  Whatever the case may be, I adored this spread.  It is reminiscent of the times when ‘fros and big hair were coveted, celebrated and held as a thing of beauty and a sign of strength. 

We have strayed away from this self-assuredness and appreciation for who we are, and how we look, but this proves we’re coming back – beautiful and more daring than ever.

Here are Corrine Bailey Rae, Solange, actress Juno Temple, and Les Nubians wearing their crowns of glory.

***You know I couldn’t leave without giving my opinion, so although all the gowns were equally stunning, my personal favorite was the Giambattista Valli dress worn by the cover girl, Solange.  It looks like something fit only for a queen. Wouldn’t you agree? What’s yours?

Basketball is like that fine chick that's exciting but she's ALWAYS around. You get bored quickly. Football is that chick that gives you just enough, but keeps you wanting more...
